    Coney Island. I have an exam this morning followed by a hectic trip to a funfair so I need something that will get me through the day without being overwhelmingly obtrusive. Amber will have to wait for tomorrow when I'll be relaxed at home.

    For SnS Saturday, and In honor of Sudsy I'm going over the top with THREE ambers today - starting light and ending with a blast.

    For early morning Yves Rocher's Voile d' Ambre (thank you Wolfie!!)
    Head Notes: Italian Green Mandarin, Cardamom.
    Heart Notes: Myrrh, Incense, Opoponax.
    Base Notes: Madagascar Vanilla, Australian Sandalwood, Patchouli.....light and lovely, literally a veil of amber.

    When she fades, I'll segue into PdE Ambre Russe: (thank you Musse!)
    * Top Notes
    * Vodka, Champagne,
    * Middle Notes
    * Coriander, Cumin, Cinnamon, Russian Tea ,
    * Base Notes
    * Russian Leather, Grey Amber, Church Incense....this is truly unusual and my favoritest amber so far.

    To wind up the day, the eponymous bombshell Anne Pliska (Thank you Kyra and Musse!!)
    * Top Notes
    * Mandarin, Bergamot, Orange,
    * Middle Notes
    * Vanilla, Geranium,
    * Base Notes
    * Vanilla, Amber, Musk, Patchouli....even though I don't think of her as an amber. I love her lush, in-your-face sensuousness.

    Sudsy and I had/have the same birthday - I'm longing for my scent-sister.

    I'm with you Taolady in Yves Rocher Voile d'Ambre.
    I had dug out my sample of Ambre Sultan to wear for the speak n shiff and forgot it was today, only remembering after I'd had a good old squirt all over with the VdA. How fortuitous, as my Mother says.

    Oh hell. Didn't understand Tao's reference to Sudsy so have just been checking out the boards to see what's going on and learned about Sudsy's death. How damn sad. She was one of the BNers I'd chatted with via PM and got to know a tiny bit. She was so nice. What a bloody shame. My condolences to her friends and family.

    Top Notes: Aldehydes , Bergamot, Lemon, Neroli
    Heart Notes: Rose, Jasmine from Grasse, Ylang-Ylang, Iris
    Base Notes: Amber, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Cedar, Civet, Musk, Patchouli

    I think I may end up wearing Chanel no 5 for the entire month of October.
    I went out and bought the pure parfum version and its animalic presence astonished me.
    My immediate thought was of MKK or Kama Xtreme - I did not realize that there is civet in this elegant classic.
    And since there is amber in the base notes, I hope I can get away with it for my Amber Day scent.

    It will be a year soon that I found basenotes, and was first repulsed by Mitsouko.
    Now I find myself in love with Chanel no 5 and I can't see myself parting with my bottle of Mitsouko. I went in a big circle and ended up right back where I started but with a completely changed point of view.
    wow. You live and learn, eh?
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    In Fiore Fumee d'Ambre Parfum Solide for today's Sniff & Speak.

    Notes: incense, vetivier root, patchouli leaves, with a dry down of musk and sweet amber.

    LOVE this!

    Started the day in Ambre Narguile, but one big, sweaty vacuuming session later, I had to shower and turned to the cooling effects of Nanadebary Green.

    If you're wearing something with amber in it today,
    be sure to tell us why you like that scent within the
    S&S thread at the top of the forum.

    In keeping with the Amber SNS ( after wallowing in Ambre Narguile) I have donned Ava Luxe Golden Amber and it is quite fabulous...I think I like the AL Ambers more than my L'Artisan Amber
